Cochin (Kochi)

Formerly known as Cochin, Kochi is a charming South Indian city that holds an interesting mix of British, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese, Arab and Jewish influences from its colonial past. Many flock to Kochi for its harmonious ambience and vast open spaces – the perfect idyllic holiday. While it is mostly known for the scenic Kerala Backwaters, the city of Kochi also comes alive with traders and tourists bargaining over the price of quirky memorabilia as well as traditional clothing and jewellery.
